Did anyone use their lightsaber except for blocking? I know he is strong with the force but he could be better with it like walk while blocking or reflect laser beams at the shooters.


Maybe after leveling up your able to do that. But the inability to move while blocking did make the fight against that AT-ST harder.


You can do that in the demo, you just have to block at the right time.



I meant while walking.

5/5? Wouldn't give it that myself... I mean it's good but it's no genre re-defining supertastic title or anything. I'd give it 4 douches, Because I believe scoring systems are for pussies.

I don't really follow Empires reviews of games. They gave Transformers 4 stars(!) and Soul Calibur 4, 5 stars.

What?! Five stars for SC4? Damn you Empire...stick to reviewing films, you obviously no nothing about games. SC4 was drivel.

TFU on the other hand is damn fine. I really enjoyed the demo and I can't get enough of that forceness. I threw a freakin' box out a window and saw a Stormtrooper get sucked out. Incredible. I used the force to throw a tie-fighter from the roof onto a bunch of guys. I love this game and I WOULD agree with Empire and it's 5 stars. This will be amazing.

The only thing that will let this game down is the possiblity its not going on live. I read that it won't be multiplayer online which is a real shame, but then the demo included the Xbox Live logo...so maybe, just maybe...

Can't wait for this too drop after playing the demo.I've completed and got all the achievements i can from my remaining games so my slate is clear to just hammer this on release and i have a weeks holiday to take as well.
More than anything though i'm looking forward to synging some wookie hair with Darth Vader on the first level, aaaahhhh geek heaven.

Yeah. They've already got toys out...and putting the characters in Soul Calibur...now d'you reckon they had to pay to do that or Capcom (is it them?) had to pay George for the rights? Seems a bit of a good deal on both parts...

I'm not that bothered about this game - might pick it up when it drops in price - but if there was a level where I could slaughter Gungans by the dozen then I'd snap it up in an instant.

Early days yet, but it's not getting the most earth-shattering of reviews.  I may hang on to my Gamestation credit for a little while longer then.

Ouch. Looks like I was right in deciding against buying it and just renting instead.

I'm at work and can't go to Metacritic's game section. Whats the general concensus or score range? Not good I take it.

Might be worth buying a pre-owned after a few months.

4 reviews averaging about 68.  Fun, but a bit disappointing seems to be the concensus.

68% on 4 reviews.

75 Official Xbox Magazine
With its non-branching storyline and no multiplayer, Force Unleashed is certainly less ambitious than the classic "Jedi Knight" games - and ultimately, its design makes it feel more videogame-y and less of an all-engrossing Star Wars experience than Xbox entries like "Jedi Knight II" or "Jedi Academy." But when the game is on, it's on. [Oct 2008, p.70]

70 GamePro
Make no mistake: you can have a lot of fun with The Force Unleashed. [Oct 2008, p.88]

70 games(TM)
By even allowing the choice between simple hack-and-slash gameplay and the more complex mix-up combos, LucusArrts has ensured that many will never view the title’s full potential. [Oct 2008, p.104]

56 Electronic Gaming Monthly
An ambitious--yet ultimately dissatisfying--effort. [Oct 2008, p.82]

This reminds me of Jedi Power Battles on the PS2 but shite as that was it at least had a two player option.

The lack of multiplayer is always a big negative for me. Looking at the gameplay vids it also looks far too linear. Its a shame because with certain aspects of the gameplay this had a lot of potential and combined with a greater RPG element could make a good game in the future. Imagine this gameplay combined with Mass Effect style RPG-ness!

I'd have been  pleasantly surprised if it got anything higher. Oh well guess I'll have to play Jedi Outcast till it drops to under 20 quid

Dang, those are some harsh words.

I do think the multiplayer will hold the title back, who doesn't want lightsaber battles over Live? But I still hold out hope this will be incredible. The demo blew me away. So there is no multi-branch story...but it has to fit in betwixt movies 3 and 4...

Meh. The dark side will grip me.

That's because everyone has completed Cars.
But surely The Force Unleashed would be worth an Assassins Creed, Marvel Ultimate Alliance or Jericho?
